New York Comic Con 2011: Horror in the Halls of the Javits CenterBy this time next week the 2011 New York Comic Con will be wrapping up for another year, but let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves — there are panels to see and toys to buy first! Here’s a look at the horror highlights along with a few other genre-related appearances that should be of interest to our readers.

Thursday, October 13th, is void of horror (might be a good shopping day) so this list just covers the 14th-16th. It is, of course, subject to change so if you’re going, keep your eyes on the official New York Comic Con website.

Friday, October 14th

10:30 am – 11:30 am
Once Upon a Time Exclusive Screening and Panel
American Airlines Theater, 1A06
Calling all “Lost” fans – join creators and executive producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz (“Lost” and “Tron: Legacy”) as they introduce you to the magical story of two parallel worlds: one in a distant fairytale land, the other in a present-day reality. Following the exclusive screening of the pilot, Eddy and Adam will participate in a Q&A panel moderated by Matt Mitovich, Editor-at-Large for, about this modern fairytale turned on its head. Arrive early for exclusive magic mirrors!

10:45 am – 11:45 am
Zombies, Fallen Angels, and Other Paranormals
Location: 1A23
Speakers: Bob Fingerman, Drew Magary, Lia Habel, Nancy Holzner, Stefan Petrucha, Tahereh Mafi, Thomas E. Sniegoski, Veronica Rossi
Fiction authors discuss the not-quite-living-but-most-certainly-not-dead characters that inhabit the pages of their novels and their complicated, pulse-challenged relationships. From dangerous supernatural investigations to zombie invasions, where do love and kindness fit into the scheme of these post-apocalyptic tales? The concept of good vs. evil comes in to play with an undead, supernatural twist. In Lia Habel’s novel, a proper young Victorian lady finds true love in the arms of a dashing zombie while Bob Fingerman explores human compassion after a zombie pandemic sweeps the land. Stefan Petrucha’s protagonist is wrongly convicted of his wife’s murder, but is brought back to life after his execution ready to make things right. The hero of Thomas E. Sniegoski’s series must fight evil forces while mourning the loss of his wife, while Nancy Holzner’s heroine must deal with a teenage zombie sidekick, a vampire roommate, and werewolf boyfriend. Tahereh Mafi’s heroine can kill with a single touch (which wreaks havoc on all attempts at intimacy). In an apocalyptic world strewn with cannibals and wolves, Veronica Rossi’s dystopian heroine learns to find love with someone from far beyond her realm of experience. These authors will argue that despite the presence of mortally-challenged characters in these novels, the stories speak more to life and humanity than death.

This panel will discuss steampunk as a literary and artistic genre, examining steampunk’s literary origins and early examples of steampunk in comic book medium, as well as modern examples from both mediums such as Jay Lake’s Mainspring, G.

In this, the tenth anniversary year of Neil Gaiman’s AMERICAN GODS, the ultimate urban fantasy road trip, we’ve seen a rash of infernal plagues infect some of America’s greatest cities. Witchcraft and demonic activity infect Kim Harrison’s Cincinnati, while Patricia Briggs’ novels wreak havoc on the shapeshifter, vampire and demonic tribes of the Tri Cities region of Washington State. Anton Strout and Edward Lazellari see New York as the ultimate urban fantasy battleground. Rachel Caine has created an apocalyptic outpost in the Lone Star State vampire-controlled city of Morganville, terror has taken a bite out of Christina Henry’s Chicagoland, and Duane Swierczynski’s newest novels take us straight to Hell. These authors will argue that there truly is a continental divide between the forces of East and West; North and South; Good and Evil. Grab a bag of Cheetos, a six-pack of Red Bull, and some holy water and join us as we explore the road to perdition…
